For every complaint about Facebook, I want you to think about this as a counter..
I went to see Super-Mom's husband over the weekend... FB came along for moral support and because he loves the woods...
When we got there, it became clear to me that Super-Mom's husband wasn't going to meaningfully understand visitors for too much longer.
Early this morning, I sent a facebook message to his natural children -- who live in corn state. I didn't like to do it in a facebook message, but that's the only reliable contact I have with them -- they're my facebook friends.
They're on their way up to see him tomorrow.
The next time someone posts something dumb and you curse Facebook -- also remember that it's a means of communication that is bringing together a father and his daughters, most likely for the last time.
